I’m Nina. I graduated from Syracuse University in 2016and I double majored in writing and rhetoric with religion. While in college I noticed that balancing between responsibilities, my social life, meeting with professors, getting work done, keeping in contact with my family back in Brooklyn, and staying happy felt impossible. I saw myself giving too much of myself to things outside and not having me time, not appreciating or loving myself.
Now, even after graduating and slowly getting used to this real world thing, deciding what I want to do with my life, accepting that I actually have something to offer has been my biggest challenge. Not to mention healing through my anxiety and depression.
I’m in the process of self-realization and it’s really scary. I’m learning to love myself, accept who I am, and not get too caught up in what people think or how others view and judge me. My goal is to wake up every morning excited and ready to take on the world. No worries. No complaints. Happy. I want to be able to look at an obstacles with the mindset that things are in my control and even if it’s not, I can deal and cope with what I can.
Along with finding purpose, I found myself thinking more and more about my womanhood and how self-love affects who I am and how I percieve who I want to be. How I see myself is important!
Being a woman with all of its twist and turns of everyday life with the periods, mood swings, menopause, puberty, pregnancy, and a lot of the time low self-esteem and a negative self-perception from the baggage of sterotypes and gender normativity, makes being a woman both challenging and stressful. Womanhood is beautiful and every woman deserves to see the unimaginable power, strength, and endurance inside her.
The purpose of my blog is to empower and captivate the minds of women to love, cherish, and value themselves as women on a day to day basis. What can you do to continuously value and permanently love who you are? How can you be happy with yourself while coping with the strains of every day life?
Lets journey together.
